Thibaut Courtois believes Real Madrid are a better team than Barcelona this year. Therefore, according to the Belgian, the Catalans should not be declared champions.
As you know, the 2019/20 football championships and events have been temporarily postponed or canceled altogether due to the Coronavirus pandemic. European top leagues are waiting for the situation to improve to continue the season.
The exception is the French Championship. Ligue 1 ended with the intervention of the French government, and Paris Saint-Germain, which was in first place in the tournament table at the time, was named champions, ahead of second-placed Marseille by 12 points and the Parisian team by one game less.
The situation is different in Spain. They managed to hold 27 rounds in La Liga. Barcelona managed to take 58 points and are two points ahead of the nearest follower Real Madrid. In case of cancellation of the championship, it is difficult to announce the Catalan team as the champion. However, it is suggested that La Liga will continue and the season will end.
“We were a better team.”
Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has commented on Barcelona’s announcement as champions. The Belgian believes that naming the Catalans as the winner will be unfair.
“We are just two points behind them. If the season had been canceled and Barcelona had been declared champions, it would have been unfair.
We played one draw with them and the other we won. We were a better team. Liverpool are another case. They are so far away that I don’t even know how many points they are ahead of the nearest follower. I want to be able to finish the season, “said the 27-year-old goalkeeper.
